The SOLVAY schools are one of the creations of Ernest SOLVAY, the founder of the eponymous group as well as of a range of schools (physics, chemistry, sociology, physiology). Very early, the Physics and Chemistry Institutes held their Congress, which were occasions for Nobel Prize laureates to meet each other together with "progressive forces" in these fields. It seemed natural for the Alumni of our business schools to follow this path and, from 2005 on, we have organized BIG EVENTS, later CONGRESSES biannually.

In case you are willing to take an individual seat, the price is:
  • 150 EUR  for fee paying members of SolvaySchoolsAlumni as well as for Solvay MA students
  • 250 EUR for Solvay Schools Alumni not yet members of the association, but the 250 EUR includes the fee for the 2017 membership.

If you wish to book your seat for this event, you can contact the Event Coordinator, Sophie PAQUET (sophie@solvayschoolsalumni.net - 02 650 30 59).

We can also offer you two formula’s for your company, each of which includes the participation of 10 people to the academic session as well as to the dinner that follows:

  • Formula “GOLD” at the price of 6.000 EUR excl. VAT;
  • Formula “PLATINUM” at the price of 9.000 EUR excl. VAT.

If you choose the PLATINUM formula, you are mainly expressing a deeper support to the activities of the Schools and their Alumni. This choice also gives you the guarantee that the logo of your company will be on every official document linked to the CONGRESS (i.e., the “Extended Programme” handed over to the participants to the academic session; the “Congress Review” sent to each participant after the event; presence of your company’s name on the entire page that L’ECHO and DE TIJD will devote to the event).

If you have any question about our CONGRESS, please do not hesitate to contact the SOLVAY SCHOOLS ALUMNI office by e-mail, at sophie@solvayschoolsalumni.net, or by telephone, at 02 650 30 59
